What does Darla Huie call her winning cheese dip?

I'm linking a special visit by a Chef for whom I have much admiration to the blog. If you're ever in the Northwest Arkansas area, specifically, Johnson - just north of Fayetteville, you must visit James at the Mill. I promise you will have an unforgettable experience... one that will have you planning your next trip back. Chef Miles James is the Executive Chef/Owner.
Look for link below and to the right - under KATVPam
I apologize for just getting this posted but Trish Matthews of Mabelvale won the gift certificate to Skeeter and Millies in Sheridan. Her name was pulled on MidDay last Thursday after she correctly answered the trivia question: Of the two, who was famous and why - Skeeter or Millie? The correct answer: George 'Skeeter" Dickey - he and his Hall of Famer brother, Bill Dickey, were professional baseball players.
All correct answers are entered in a drawing.
Thanks for to all for taking the time to leave a post. Your chance to win this week!!! It's another good one, so you'll want to tune in.
Meantime, if you have a spot in your 'neck o' the woods' you want to recommend, please leave me a note. I check the blog, Facebook and Twitter.
Also, since it's getting cooler outside - if you've got a great chili recipe you want to share - leave it here and we'll post it.
Thanks and see you during Pam's Picks, tomorrow on Live at Five!

72nd Annual Arkansas State Fair, October 8-17, 2010
Everything imaginable and perhaps not imaginable on the menu at the State Fair this year. From fried alligator to fried sausage on a stick wrapped with a potato, fried Hershey's Kisses and fried peanut butter cups - fried onions, fried mushrooms, fried pickles, fried zucchini - need I say more. What got my goat, literally was the goat served in a wrap, like a pita goat. And barbecued rabbit. Safe to say not many have experienced that delicacy before. Wash any of that down with Hillbilly Hollow or Hollerin' (wasn't quite sure) Juice.
If that seems a little untamed for your taste buds, you can always revert to the old standards, smoked turkey legs, corn dogs, cotton candy and candy apples. Don't know if my friends are back in the Hall of Industry this year. But if you must do a candy or caramel apple - you must check them out. Not cheap but crisp delicious Granny Smith apples served whole or sliced, dipped in nuts or not. I would save all my calories just to indulge in one of those at least one time a year.
My personal menu usually consists of a polish sausage sandwich, roasted corn on the cob and a caramel apple - I'm good after that. And a few laps around the fairgrounds help work off the extra lbs. or at least that's what I tell myself.
I highly recommend checking out the newest exhibit (free with admission) - the museum which chronicles the history of the fair and features some pretty interesting photos from yesteryear, like the one of President Roosevelt at the Hot Springs location in 1910. I'm told he stopped in following a game hunt. You can also see a photo of the gentleman for whom the coliseum is named as well as a photo of the building itself when it did not have a roof.
Organizers are hoping fairgoers will take advantage of free admission and parking during the weekday, from 11 am to 1 pm, so can visit and have lunch.
